Semester Drag

It is that time of the semester when everyone is feeling a little bedraggled. My students are looking at me like if I ask them to simplify one more expression they will pass out. I try to put a good face on, but I'm feeling it too. In short, we're all a little fried. Soon the finals adrenaline rush will save us, but in the meantime I figured we all might need a reminder why we take/teach a math class. I found this graphic over at Filckr by Network Osaka. The graphic is really cool. Make sure to blow it up.

I sent this to the folks over at 
I am interested in buying the shirt by D Kim ( that reads "Deep Down Inside, We All Love Math." I first learned of it when a teacher at Tunxis Community College here in Farmington, CT posted its image on a blog he runs for the Math department. When I was unable to find it on your site, I contacted the designer and learned it has not yet been printed. I really love this design and am good for at least two shirts. I plan on posting a comment on the blog suggesting teachers and students contact you (as I am doing) to express an interest in this shirt getting printed. I am *sure* you'd get a few people from Tunxis that would buy it. Please let me know what else I can do to promote this shirt! Thanks - Lee Bradley

PS - here's the post that started it all for me:
